Brad Bearden
Owner

Hi, I'm Brad. First, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit our site and considering us in your search for help in achieving and maintaining the goals that you have set for yourself. I view it as an honor to have the opportunity to lead people like yourself through this journey and sincerely hope that we have the opportunity to serve you as well.

My passion for fitness began at a young age and has given me the opportunity to enjoy a very rewarding career. But what drives me is more deeply rooted than simply helping people transform their bodies and health. My greatest passion is in helping people transform their lives into something more than they thought to be possible. Helping people identify challenges that are holding them back, locking arms with them and conquering those challenges together is something that I live for! Every day, I hunger and thirst for opportunities to believe in others more than they believe in themselves.  It's just simply who I am and what I was created to do.

God has given me the skill set and opportunity to do  that through fitness training and I absolutely love it! Every morning I get to wake up, go to work and surround myself with people that are striving to improve themselves! How can you not love that?!?!?!

Beyond fitness, I also enjoy the opportunities I have to travel and serve others from the stage as a motivational speaker and fitness consultant. I've been blessed to share the stage with legends that I will always look up; and to serve as a consultant for major organizations that include MLB and NFL teams.

But before any of this, I am first and foremost a son. A son to my Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ. My faith is what drives and defines me. Second, I am "Daddy" to my two-year old twin girls: Jadyn Faith and Jordyn Hope.  My daughters are very much at the center of everything I do. And third, I am your servant. Again, I genuinely view it as an honor to help people like yourself overcome the challenges they face and achieve what may have once seemed to be impossible.

If you would like to speak with me about how I can best help you or your organization, please feel free to connect with me at: brad@bhampersonaltraining.com

Sean Thompson
Head Fitness Coach

Hi, my name is Sean Thompson, I am the Head Trainer here at Elite Fitness. I grew up in Hoover playing football for Spain Park and then moved on to Samford University were I continued my football career and pursued a degree in Exercise Science.

After I completed my degree and my football playing days ended, the passion that I had for so many years on the field, carried over into a passion for health and fitness off the field. But not merely just to help people lose weight or acquire a certain look. Rather, my deepest desire and my passion in life is to help mold people into a better them.

From the confidence that comes with looking and feeling better, to the fulfillment of helping my clients overcome one of the biggest challenges in their lives; I am blessed to be apart in this fun, exciting and very rewarding process.

If you have any questions, or if I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me atsean@bhampersonaltraining.com

    Bree Garrett
    Nutrition Tech

    My love for health and nutrition started at a young age when I would spend time with my grandparents in their garden in North Alabama. Many of my weekends were spent snapping beans, shucking corn, and helping my grandmother make pear preserves. I learned how real food tasted and made me feel.

    I have always loved to cook and in college, it was common to have an apartment full of friends over for dinner. They were always surprised to find out that it not only tasted great, but was good for them. When I found out that I could get my BS at the University of North Alabama with a concentration in Nutrition, it was an obvious choice, followed by my love of marketing as a minor. This started a natural progression of jobs where I could teach others about food and nutrition.

    I worked at a health food store where I learned the difference in food labels on clean products compared to highly processed foods in conventional stores. Wanting to learn more, I went on to get a MS in Health and Nutrition Education. After working at a natural health college as a Nutrition Advisor, I started volunteering to teach nutrition classes at Jones Valley Teaching Farm in downtown Birmingham and was eventually hired to be their Nutrition Educator. There I developed a food and nutrition program with over 5000 participants a year.

    This program was near and dear to my heart as I was able to teach children and adults about gardens, sustainable agriculture, harvesting seasonal crops, teach them about nutrition, and how to cook healthy meals. While serving on the Obesity Taskforce and the Health Action Partnership for Jefferson County, I led many community programs teaching others how to improve their lifestyle.

    I am excited to be working with Elite Fitness where I will be able to share my experience and passion for clean, healthy food with you.

    Besides food, my hobbies include hiking, camping, traveling to new places, music, yoga, and meeting new people. Look forward to meeting you!!

    Keith Washington
    Fitness Coach

    Hello. I have something to tell you: YOU’RE ALL AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY JOURNEY!! Born and raised in New York, I grew up playing various sports (football, baseball, track and field, etc.). Upon graduating high school, I’m proud to say I served in the U.S. Army over in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. This allowed me to visit the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France and the bullfights in Barcelona, Spain!

    Problem was, I never knew what I wanted to do afterward. Trying to push myself into occupations that weren’t for me, I fell numerous times. But, I always managed to pick myself up one more time! I eventually moved to Orlando, FL and worked hard to earn a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Central Florida, where I also worked for 3 1/2 years as a Personal Trainer. I loved it! And I love serving people in this capacity; I’VE TRULY FOUND MY PASSION!!

    Now, here at Elite Fitness and Body, my promise is that I’ll give my best. And yes, on this journey, I may fall. But please believe that I’ll get up yet again. “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” – Chinese Proverb.

    With that said, if you ever have any questions, or just want to say, “Hello.” Please don’t hesitate to send me an email at: Keith@bhampersonaltraining.com.

    Mikki Wilson
    Administrative Director

    Hi, I'm Mikki. I am the Administrative Director here at Elite Fitness. I have spent the majority of my life in Birmingham but have lived all over the east coast.

    I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing from UAB in 2011, GO BLAZERS. I have been since seeking a career that would be rewarding and provide a sense of fulfillment. I have found just that here at Elite.

    ​Watching people achieve their personal fitness goals and change their lives is an experience like no other. It has pushed me to go after my own fitness goals. It wasn't until after I got married and was blessed with two AMAZING little boys that I began to struggle with weight. Working here was that final push and motivation I needed to lose that extra weight.

    It is so easy to get comfortable in life and lose track when it comes to fitness and nutrition. We would love to help you along your journey.

    Amber Donaldson
    Fitness Coach

    Born and raised all over the southeast, I spent most my life in and around the gym. Thankfully that passion stuck as I grew older and pursued an education from Auburn University, WAR EAGLE, in Nutrition & Health Promotion.

    Watching people achieve their physical fitness goals is one of the most rewarding gifts to ever see. Its the best gift you can ever give yourself. My biggest wish is for everyone to become the best versions of themselves: happier, healthier, and stronger than they've ever been before!

    I would love to help you reach your goals and have you experience how fun life can be when you can wake up each morning and feel great about what you see looking back at you in your bathroom mirror.

    Let me know how I can help you by shooting me an email at amber@bhampersonaltraining.com
